Catholic Bishops: HHS Mandate “Unprecedented” Religious Violation

The nation’s Catholic bishops have taken a new comprehensive look at the Obama HHS mandate that compels religious groups and businesses to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.

The general counsel of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops states that the current proposed revisions of the Obama Administration’s contraceptive mandate are “an unprecedented …violation of religious liberty by the federal government” and must be changed.
